Saints' Drew Brees: Reaches career milestone in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brees completed 27 of 38 passes for 331 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in Sunday's 26-17 win over the Packers. He also netted minus-1 yard on five rushes.

The prolific passer's afternoon got off to an inauspicious start, as threw both of his picks in the first quarter. However, Brees rebounded to become only the fourth player in NFL history to throw at least 500 touchdown passes when he fired a 22-yard scoring dart to Brandon Coleman in the third quarter. With Willie Snead (hamstring) sidelined, Brees displayed great synergy with top targets Ted Ginn, Jr. (seven receptions, 141 yards) and Michael Thomas (seven receptions, 82 yards) while also finding rookie running back phenom Alvin Kamara five times through the air. The Saints have displayed excellent balance over the last two games in terms of run-pass ratio, a factor that can only work in Brees' favor over the long term. He'll look to put together his third 300-yard effort of the season when New Orleans tangles with the Bears in Week 8.

Saints' Drew Brees: Held to 186 yards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brees completed 21 of 31 passes for 186 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's 52-38 win over Detroit.

You'd have to go back to Week 12 of the 2013 season for the last time Brees was held under 200 passing yards. The fact the Saints defense generated two pick-sixes and the team was in position for much of the second half to try to run out the clock can be seen as contributing factors. Brees himself threw an ugly pick-six late Sunday and snapped his four-game streak without an interception to start the season. Expect Brees to return to his more typical statistical output next week against a reeling Packers squad.

Saints' Drew Brees: Thrives in second half
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brees completed 29 of 41 passes for 268 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 20-0 victory over the Dolphins in London.

Brees and the rest of the offense put together a sluggish first half, but the prolific passer picked things up considerably following halftime. The 17-year veteran hooked up with Michael Thomas for a three-yard score on the first possession of the second half, capping off an 11-play, 77-yard drive. He then tallied the Saints' final points of the day with a 12-yard throw to Alvin Kamara, which put a bow on another 11-play march. Brees has only one 300-yard effort thus far this season, but he's posted at least a 70-percent completion rate in three contests to go along with a sterling 8:0 TD:INT. He'll look to keep his excellent start going in Week 6 versus the Lions following a Week 5 bye.

Saints' Drew Brees: Throws three touchdowns in win over Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brees completed 22 of 29 passes for 220 yards and three touchdowns during Sunday's 34-13 win over the Panthers.

Brees efficiently completed 76 percent of his passes while hooking up with nine different receivers. He connected with Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn and Brandon Coleman for scores, deferring to the run game after building a comfortable lead. Brees has been outstanding through three weeks in 2017, throwing six touchdowns compared to no interceptions while averaging 289 yards per game. He will look to keep it up next week against a Dolphins team that was just beaten handily by the Jets.

Saints' Drew Brees: Tosses two touchdowns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brees completed 27 of 45 passes for 356 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 36-20 loss to New England. He also fumbled during the contest.

As was the case in Week 1 against Minnesota, a late touchdown toss made the beat-down look a bit more palatable than it actually was, but make no mistake about New Orleans' early performance - it hasn't been good. Brees lost Brandin Cooks who, even when not utilized was capable of keeping defenses honest, in the offseason and he essentially replaced him with Ted Ginn Jr. Perhaps most troubling, New Orleans' defensive struggles have put the team's offense in a bind by taking away the run. This style of play is conducive to a ton of attempts for Brees, but will make it hard for the Saints to punch it into the end zone as defenses play conservative while preserving big leads.
